HP Pavilion - 15-ec0016nm

Hi, I would like to upgrade my laptop (HP Pavilion - 15-ec0016nm) with an ssd of higher capacity. I am somehow unable to find information about the hardware requirements when buying the ssd.

Could you please provide me with the following information for the ssd I should buy:

-size (2230/2280)

-which Pcie version (gen3 or gen4)

 

It says the laptop has m2 nvme socket, but unfortunately I didn't find further information.

If it helps, in windows i found out the current ssd is kbg30mzv256 kioxia.

 

Thank you for your time!
